Boy, 7, dies of injuries from Los Angeles shooting

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say a 7-year-old boy has died of injuries sustained in a drive-by shooting in West Los Angeles.

Det. Gus Villanueva said the boy was pronounced dead at a hospital Tuesday night.

He was sitting in a parked car Monday night when a white car drove up and someone inside opened fire. The boy was shot in the back.

Villanueva said the child's mother and a 31-year-old man who were also injured in the shooting remained hospitalized in stable condition.

The victims drove themselves to the hospital.

Witnesses reported seeing four men driving off in the white car. No other details were released.
